Happy new year! I'm having trouble locating an article in QST the last 15 years or so, building a temporary rotatable dipole out of pvc pipe and bamboo with linear loading of the elements. It was touted as being especially suited for attachment to deck railings. Any help would be appreciated...

The new digital QST archive since 2012 doesn't show any useful hits for the word "bamboo."
